US Civil War M1860 Cavalry Sabre, Ames Mfg, 1861

This item is listed for historical interest only. It was listed on our site previously but has been sold and is no longer available for purchase.
Sold for: $625.00
Item #32169

Original period manufacture. Classic US Cavalry edged weapon made by the famous firm of Ames Manufacturing Company of Chicopee Massachusetts. The 1861 blade date sets this swords place in time at the opening of hostilities, allowing the sword to be a mute witness to the events of the next four years. The 35 inch polished steel blade is very clean, runs straight and true with makers name and date on the ricasso. Three branch brass guard and pommel cap in good repair, original leather wrapped grip with single brass wire binding. Bright steel scabbard is dent free, shows a recent cleaning, with evidence of light pitting along its length. Overall the sword is quite sound, the only detractions being the cleaning of the scabbard and an attempt by a previous owner to clean the patina on the guard.
